“I’m grateful to the Club because being a Sevillista is something great, just like having this opportunity.
“I’m eager to get training, I’m eager to see the players… There are four matches left but we’re going to give our blood, sweat and tears. Not just us but the footballers too, because when you have talent and quality you can do a lot more”.
“There’s a lot of quality in the squad, a lot of international footballers. What happens is that football enters a certain dynamic… But I think we have a fantastic squad, with varied players. We’re going to fight… We’re going to give everything to try and achieve the objectives the Club set at the start of the season”.
“There’s no salvation because the salvation comes in the footballers themselves, with the talent they have. This team has a lot of talent… That’s the salvation. Football is a game for the players. They are the ones who decide things with their quality and skill. We’re going to try and find a good attitude for the players”.
